Damn do I have mixed feelings about Tom Waits. I love the weird raspiness, the fierce noncommercialty, the twisted poetry and, when the mood strikes him, those haunting tunes. Of course, Waits commitment to his art includes a a lot of blurpy jazz, New Yorky art and megaphoney tunelessness, which can alienate a song-based person like myself. Of course, all of that is what makes Tom Tom and I'm not dissing the man, whom I admire greatly.
Wait's new video "Hell Broke Luce" (all the context you could need is compiled here), contains almost everything mentioned above and a bunch of other weird-ass elements to make a chilling audio and video statement on the waste of war.
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
